    "hara kiri" is just used in comics. The word traditionally used by samurai and classical(pre-modern) Japanese military is seppuku. The disgraced soldier would cut open his belly and his second would cut off his head for the final death blow assurance.

    Nestorianism is a heresy, for one. https://orthodoxwiki.org/Nestorianism Nestorianism is a Christological heresy which originated in the Church in the 5th century out of an attempt to rationally explain and understand the incarnation of the divine Logos, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity as the man Jesus Christ. Nestorianism teaches that the human and divine essences of Christ are separate and that there are two persons, the man Jesus Christ and the divine Logos, which dwelt in the man. Thus, Nestorians reject such terminology as "God suffered" or "God was crucified", because they believe that the man Jesus Christ suffered. Likewise, they reject the term Theotokos (Giver of birth to God) for the Virgin Mary, using instead the term Christotokos (giver of birth to Christ) or Anthropotokos (giver of birth to a man). Origins of NestorianismNestorian ideas were first developed in the writings of Diodore of Tarsus against the heresy of Apollinarius. In refuting Apollinarianism, Diodore wrote that at the time of the Incarnation and after the Incarnation, the Divine and human natures of Jesus Christ were divided to such an extent that there was complete independence of natures and no union whatsoever. These ideas were further developed by Theodore of Mopsuestia (c.350-429), a scholar in the Antochian tradition. Theodore taught that the human and Divine natures of Christ were so completely separate that there was only contact between them, but no union of any kind. In developing his ideas, Theodore wrote that the Man Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary completely naturally and with all faults of men, and that God the Logos (Word), having foreknown the Man's triumph over sin, chose to redeem the human race through Him by becoming united with Him by Grace from the time of His conception. Because of His triumph over sin, the Man Jesus was made worthy of being called Son of God at the time of the Theophany. Then, after His complete triumph over sin during His passion, He was united even more closely with the Divine Logos, becoming God's tool for the salvation of mankind. Based on these ideas, Theodore was the first to be opposed to the use of language applying to God as a description of Jesus Christ. Thus, he was opposed to the terms "God was crucified", "God suffered", or "God was born", because, he believed, only the Man Jesus was born and God dwelt in the Man Jesus. For this reason, Theodore called Jesus the Theophoros (Bearer of God). He was also opposed to the term Theotokos (Giver of birth to God) for the Virgin Mary, because, he taught, she gave birth only to the Man Jesus. Theodore's beliefs were quite heretical, since, if taken to their logical conclusion, they deny redemption and salvation; if only the Man Jesus suffered on the Cross and died for the sins of men, then how does the suffering of a man redeem the human race? Nestorianism as a public teachingNestorian ideas were originally confined to the writings of Diodore, Theodore of Mopsuestia and their close followers in Antioch. However, in 428, Emperor Theodore II called the Antiochian Priest-monk Nestorius, known for his zeal, to come to Constantinople. Nestorius, who brought with him the Priest Anastasius was made Archbishop of Constantinople. In a series of homilies in Constantinople, Anastasius denied the existence of one Theandric Person (The Godman) in Jesus Christ, teaching in Him a division of persons, and attacked the use of the term Theotokos, using instead the term Anthropotokos. This was quite controversial, since the Constantinopolitan faithful were acustomed to using the term Theotokos for the Virgin Mary. To defend Anastasius, Nestorius also said a series of homilies, preaching the teachings of Theodore of Mopsuestia, though using the term Christotokos instead of Anthropotokos. Constantinopolitan theologians rose up against the teachings of Nestorius and accused him of preaching the heresy of Paul of Samosata (see Antitrinitarianism). Nestorius then...

    Well,what else do you hope to get? Killing the killer won't bring yourloved one(s) back to life. It just makes you a killer, and no justice is done. Justice=compensating a victim. Nothing more, nothing less. (except, as we discussed prior, those instances such as when a person is demonstrably so dangerous they have to be institutionalized to protect specific people or society generally)

    Like I said quite clearly, there are degrees. A trained jurist would be able to know from expert testimony if a murderer is a danger to others and needs to be locked away from society. If that is the case,I have no problem with that. (We have lots of cops who need to be locked away too, but that's another story) Agreed?

    Depends.There are degrees of murder. I of course oppose capital punishmentfor a number of practical, moral, and ethical reasons. In every caseof murder, the defendant-if proven guilty beyond reasonabledoubt-should be compelled to make whole the victim. In the case ofmurder, the “victim”would be the spouse and/or immediate family.(the most literal victim is dead, of course) As in any proceeding,the plaintiff(s) must decide on how much they want to sue for indamages.

    Not to be crass or “mean”, but what good would throwing her in prison do? The “liberty” movement traditionally stood for justice reform. That means (among other things) rational issuance of punishment. Throwing the girl in a cage won't make her victim whole. All it will do is profit the prison industrial complex and keep the girl bored for a while at taxpayer expense.

    Your liberty to swing your arm ends at my nose. Slander and defamation are valid torts with a longstanding history in English common law.

    The reason this method of settling disputes exists is so people don't kill each other over it instead, which historically people have done quite often.

    I gave you neg rep because the thread titles in this forum are tweeted and you just made a public spectacle with an anti-Paul diatribe, when you could have asked your question in a much more civil manner. You deserved it and you should come to terms with that.

    IIRC, it was in that thread I first saw him being an ass, and -repped him. Before I pm'ed you about this, he wrote on my profile, “Wrong. Vessol is now a known liar which is quite easy to confirm. Search on my user ID and try to locate the source for Vessol's false attribution of the phrase, "bunch of stuff", to me. Well, you'll find that Vessol is the source for the false attribution. Since you're defending a known liar, your credibility is questionable.”
    Then when I pm'ed you to ask about the issue, he wote on my profile " “Instead of inquiring with Sentient Void about Vessol's lie, all you have to do is search on my UserID. You'll find the original user of the phrase in question was Vessol who falsely attributed it to me. It's not hard. I'm assuming by your question to Sentient Void that you want rumor instead of facts... ”

    He seems rather creeeepy to me. :P

On AGW, CO2 Concentration, Venus, and the playful use of Statistical Interpretation

Abortion, rights and libertarianism. How to 'solve' this understandably divisive issue?

by Sentient Void on 08-01-2013 at 05:23 PM
The issue of abortion is one that is constantly brought up and debated about at length within libertarian circles. It is often if not almost always approached as a black and white issue which in my view understandably creates tension and conclusions which cause their own problems. It's time to understand and consider a different approach to this altogether.

There is a common Rothbardian argument with respect to abortion. To the mother (the right and proper owner of her private property,

FACT: The United States actually voted for 'Nobody' in 2012

FACT: The United States voted 'NOBODY, 2012'

In *2011* the *voting age population* of the USA was 237,657,645. It's obviously even more in 2012.

61,173,739 voted for Obama.
58,167,260 voted for Romney.

That is 119,340,999 out of a total voting age population of 237,657,645.

That means that *more than half* of the population voted for *NOBODY*. Approximately 24.4% of the voting age population voted for Romney. Approximately 25.7%
